R-Type Leo (Arcade)

R-Type Leo review (ARC)

Reviewed on December 15, 2003

When you play the first few levels, your hardened fan’s heart will melt with the realization that this is the sort of simple genius that makes for excellent shooting, and is deserving of its own sequel, or series. Under another moniker, Leo may have flourished, but it found itself in limbo during the shooter supply and demand pipeline between IREM and their fans. An excellent game they got - the game they wanted, they did not.

Rezon (Arcade)

Rezon review (ARC)

Reviewed on December 15, 2003

The people at Alhummer were some evil, sadistic sons of bitches. I can’t stress this enough. They weren’t so creative, but they were cold and calculating. Consider this: they took Irem’s arcade, horizontal shooter hit, R-Type, and absolutely, positively ripped it off. But that was only the beginning. I mean, we’ve seen R-Type clones before. But Rezon takes the cloning process to a whole other level.

Gals Panic (Arcade)

Gals Panic review (ARC)

Reviewed on December 13, 2003

Your goal here is to move your icon around the square-shaped stage. You can move wherever you like so long as you like and not have to worry about dying. The minute you start drawing a line, though, you're vulnerable to attacks. Enemies are moving about along with you, and if they hit you while you're drawing, or shape you're drawing that you haven't completed, you lose a life.

Mario Bros. (Apple II)

Mario Bros. review (APP2)

Reviewed on December 12, 2003

There are new elements from one set of stages to the next. In the early areas, your enemies are turtles. Those fellows fall easily to your bumping technique. However, as you'll soon face the lobsters (they take two hits to disorient), the flies (they bounce about) and even natural hazards such as ice monsters that freeze ledges and the icicles that like to break loose and fall on your head from time to time.

Unreal Tournament: Game of the Year Edition (PC)

Unreal Tournament: Game of the Year Edition review (PC)

Reviewed on December 10, 2003

Do you have any friends? Well, do you? If the answer to this dubious and revealing question is 'yes', then you simply cannot do without playing Unreal Tournament. But I am not good at First Person Shooter games! You whine, clearly unimpressed (and most likely hiding your negative response to the first question!). To this I say, it doesn't matter! like The Rock before he hung up his spandex briefs.

Wolfenstein 3D (PC)

Wolfenstein 3D review (PC)

Reviewed on December 10, 2003

The German voices are probably the biggest aural highlight (achtung baby!), and the dogs certainly represent the most impressive show of the games graphics. Human enemies are large and menacing, but they have a squashed look to them that makes us take the whole thing less seriously than we should. It's as if the cast of River City Ransom was dropped into a pseudo 3D environment and given guns and awkward accents.

Raptor (PC)

Raptor review (PC)

Reviewed on December 10, 2003

Raptor uses a vitality bar, so beginners won’t be intimidated as they would be by an R-Type-ish one hit wonder. That vitality bar can be extended if you’ve got enough money. Money can’t buy you love, but life - now there’s a perfectly reasonable investment.

God of Thunder (PC)

God of Thunder review (PC)

Reviewed on December 10, 2003

GoT (you’ve gotta admit, it’s one of the best acronyms in the world of gaming, ever: got GoT?) gives us a top-down perspective on the goings-on in the world of its hero, much like The Legend of Zelda. But don’t confuse the challenges of Asgaard with the strictly action–RPG swashbuckling of Hyrule; there is a lot more brainwork for Thor to do than bomb cave walls and pull tongues to open doors.

Progress Quest (PC)

Progress Quest review (PC)

Reviewed on December 10, 2003

I had no idea what to expect when I was ushered into the world of Progress Quest by a couple of online acquaintances. I had been told, however, that it was a game unlike any I'd ever played and that the super-fast download was well worth the time. After unzipping and opening my 300kb file, I opened the game and saw that I was being treated to an MMORPG of sorts. The list of occupations and races was there and seemed fairly normal ..... but then I got to really looking at it. And I knew beyond a ...

Pocket Tanks (PC)

Pocket Tanks review (PC)

Reviewed on December 10, 2003

You may not realize it, but this game has been around in some form or another since (you won't believe this) (you just won't) (I swear it on my life) the 80s. Yes, back when Cosby was everyone's paradigm of humor and people took you totally seriously when you did things like say ''Gag me with a spoon'' or bust out with the Safety Dance. This game's very oldest pappy was programmed in a strange archaic computer language called QBASIC (I can see all you young whippersnappers scratchin' yer heads i...

King's Quest V: Absence Makes the Heart Go Yonder review (PC)

Reviewed on December 10, 2003

Once again, it's time to dip into my Hotmail inbox, where once in a while I rummage down far enough past the debt consolidation messages and annoyingly persistent offers to ''enlarge [myself] safely and naturally'' to locate a message worth reading. Ah, here's one! Let us peruse its inner details. Ahem:

Home Alone 2 (PC)

Home Alone 2 review (PC)

Reviewed on December 10, 2003

A lot of the things wrong with America seem to be Macaulay Culkin's fault in some way. Thanks to The Pagemaster, kids are turned off from reading books. Ted Danson, a respectable actor even when paired with Kirstie ''Ugly-As-Sin Ice Queen'' Alley on Cheers, never fully recovered from the repeated blows to the groin and spleen that came together to form Getting Even With Dad. Macaulay Culkin was also the first child star I remember watching - almost voyeuristically, it seems - as he slid freely a...

XIII (PC)

XIII review (PC)

Reviewed on December 04, 2003

David Duchovny probably never imagined himself as a voice actor. The former star of the popular X-Files series that aired on Fox a few years back probably never expected the scope of his acting career to be limited to mystery/dramas either. But, even after that show has come and gone, Duchovny is still being cast into roles of characters with grim futures and pasts full of unanswered questions. His latest endeavor has him cast as the voice of XIII in Ubisoft's game baring the same name, and his ...

Baseball Mogul 2003 review (PC)

Reviewed on November 26, 2003

Let me start off by saying that if you are looking for great graphics and being able to control all the on-field action, this game is not for you. This game may seem simple, especially with there being next to no pictures.

Rodent's Revenge (PC)

Rodent's Revenge review (PC)

Reviewed on November 01, 2003

The very first time cats and mice laid eyes on each other centuries ago, both animals knew that until the end of time they would be ruthless opposites that would never get along. Cats don't actually hate mice. They love them. Every time a cat even hears the sharp claws or teeth of a mouse, its stomach starts rumbling like a tremoring earthquake and its mouth fills up with enough saliva to drown Lake Michigan. When a feline actually sees one of those pesky rodents, it takes off just like a rocket...

Mortal Kombat Trilogy (PC)

Mortal Kombat Trilogy review (PC)

Reviewed on October 22, 2003

The CD-ROM format has not been kind to the Mortal Kombat franchise. Believe it or not, behind all that 'button-mashing' and 'one-dimensional gameplay', there is a game engine hard at work, constantly loading new material into the fight. Whether it's Shang Tsung and his power to morph into other fighters (with all of their moves, combos, AND fatalities), or the changing battlegrounds and background music, the MK engine, at most times, is too fast for the CD-ROM.

Bandits: Phoenix Rising (PC)

Bandits: Phoenix Rising review (PC)

Reviewed on October 21, 2003

Imagine a futuristic world where the government has fallen, one just like any other video game world. Further imagine that the only way to get precious supplies is through fighting, much like a multitude of other video game worlds. Finally, imagine that the fighting takes place as you drive around various sprawling environments in stripped-down dune buggies -- now that's something a little different all together. This is the way of life for the heroes in Bandits: Phoenix Rising. In a worl...
